European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Wednesday that he has informed China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi that the bloc will not be looking to start a "cold war" against the People's Republic, APA reports citing Teletrader.

Earlier today, the European Commission has accused Russia and China of "targeted influence operations and disinformation campaigns" related to the coronavirus pandemic, the first time Beijing has formally been suspected of such practice by Brussels.

Last week, a crucial EU-China summit has been rescheduled from September because of difficulties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, without a new date being announced. Several high ranking bloc officials have criticized the national security law the Chinese central government will likely impose on Hong Kong.
